Marco Pretelli (Urbino, 1963) is an associate professor at the Università di Bologna, Department of Architecture. He graduated in Architecture at the University IUAV of Venezia and works since then in the field of conservation/restoration of heritage buildings. PhD in Conservation of Architectural Heritage, was an official of the Superintendence for Architectural Heritage and Landscape before in Arezzo, then in Venice. He was member of the College of Professors in the PhD Program in Conservation of Architectural Heritage, set up at the Politecnico di Milano; now, of the PhD Program in Architecture at Università di Bologna.

He has been responsible for important conservation works (among others, the Church of Santa Lucia; the monastery of San Francesco del Deserto, the Palazzo delle Prigioni Nuove, all in Venice, Villa Barbaro by Andrea Palladio in Maser) and has written extensively on related topics of theory and intervention on historic buildings.

He is currently a consultant for the City of Peschiera del Garda (inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List of the fortified city).

He is a member of the Scientific Committee of some journals and book series devoted to the subject of conservation/restoration of heritage buildings.

He gave a number of seminars and courses in foreign universities on computational methods for composite structures and structural reliability. 
He is author of about 250 scientific papers, more than 50 in international journals with referees. His research focuses on structures made or reinforced with composite materials ( he has been reviewer for about ten international journals). He has been member of the Scientific Committee of ICCST-1, ICCST-2, BBFS 2005, FramCos 2007 International Conferences, and Aimeta Conference in 2009. He organized the ANIDIS Conference of Seismic Engineering in Bologna in 2009 . He has been reviewer of more than 80 papers submitted to about 20 different international journals. He has been reviewer of some research proposals submitted to national and international organizations, such as NSF (National Science Foundation, U.S.A.) and FRD (South Africa). 
From 2004 to 2008, he was member of the Scientific Commitee of the Center of Excellence on "Composites for innovative applications in civil engineering" of the Federico II University in Bologna, founded by Miur.
In 2006 he was invited as a member of the Academy of Science of Bologna.
He has been expert member of the C.N.R. (National Council of Research) National Commission for ‘Codes for Reinforced Concrete Structures’ and for the ‘Strengthening of Structures with innovative materials’ one. In 2004 and 2005, he was responsible of two tasks in preparation of CNR Guide Lines on Strengthening with composite materials (DT200/2004) and on Fiber-Reinforced Concretes FRC (DT204/2006). From 2008, he is full member of that Commission. In 2004-05, he was a member of the National Council of Public Works.
From 2001 to 2010, he was the Coordinator of the Structural Tests Lab of DISTART - University of Bologna. Since 2010 he is the Director of the Centre for Industrial Research Edilizia & costruzioni of the University of Bologna.
